In our old post we showed how to make Cell Grid Lines visible in Microsoft Word 2007. We’ll need an update to that. It’s pretty much the same, now it just looks different. For Microsoft Word 2010, or Office 365, you’ll find it under the Design tab, then click on Borders, and select “View Gridlines” from the drop down menu.
The cat address labels above are on the ML-3000 address labels.
Here is the MS-1020 label template. Each rectangular label on the small sheet is 5/8″ X 1-1/4″. The labels run lengthwise on the long dimension of the sheet. So when running them through a printer, it’s probably best to use a vertical font, which is in the template below.
These labels were originally designed for hand applications, and they are also removable. While customers use these templates to print, be aware that they can come off in the printer due to the fact that they are removable and there are also high heat conditions in some laser printers, and some very tight printer roller paths in some printers.
The MS-1224 is a rectangular removable label that is 3/4″ X 1-1/2″. Occasionally folks would like to print on these labels, so we’ve got some caveats before proceeding. Firstly, this label was originally designed for hand applications, and is removable. Some laser printers run very hot, and some printers have tight roller paths that the label sheet must travel on. Since this label is also removable, be aware that this label could detach from the backing sheet and become stuck in your printer. If you’ve already printed small sheeted removable labels in your printer, and are comfortable with printing them, you can use the following template:
Also be aware that printers physical margins vary from printer to printer. Your particular printer may not print at the outer margins (left,right,top,bottom). This can vary from 0″ to 3/4″. So printing on these small sheets may cover only the inner rows and columns.
One more thing, if you’re having problems with the text not fitting, search our blog for ‘Vertical Text’ to help you get the text to run vertically in each cell. It’s much easier to change the text to vertical rather than change the orientation of the small sheet to landscape.:).
Just one more thing, cut out sheets of the same size to do test prints rather than wasting you’re labels.
If you’ve read our old post ( http://macolabels.com/wordpress/2010/07/12/pinfeed-label-printing-tip/) on how to print the Maco 42-451 one across pinfeed label, you’ll note that the example template was for office 2007, which uses the Avery 4013 template, which is the same layout as the 42-451. If you’ve started using Office 10 or Office 365, you’ll notice that Avery 4013 is gone. But have no fear, there is another Avery number you can use. Use the Avery 4018. It’s the exact same layout as the 4013. The only difference is that the Avery 4018 is a removable label.
Just click OK, and then “New Document”, and you’ve got a new template:
